I was shocked by how backward the 1996 Pontet-Canet was on the three occasions I tasted it in January. This wine possesses superb potential but it appears a decade's worth of patience will be necessary. The color is a saturated dark purple. With coaxing the wine offers aromas of black currant jam intertwined with minerals sweet oak and spice. A full-bodied wine it possesses layered concentrated sweet fruit with an elevated level of ripe tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2035.

A young red with bright black licorice and berry aromas and hints of spice. Full-bodied with firm tannins and compact fruit structure. Slightly closed on the finish but impressive nonetheless. Best after 2002. –JS
